Antoinette S Morgan

I grew up in Oregon's Willamette Valley near Portland. I attended Portland State University and Later the University of Hawaii. During my junior year, I met my husband, a career Marine. Three months later, we married. Fifty-eight years and many moves later, we're still married.

For nearly four of those years we lived a few miles south of Hiroshima, Japan. An unbelievable experience. For three years, I had the opportunity to work in a Japanese pottery factory (which is featured in my novel, "Echoes from a Falling Bridge."

Eight years ago, we moved to southwest Idaho. I'd heard about the Japanese internment camps, but the knowledge never really impacted me until I learned that Japanese internees and even German and Italian POWs had worked in the fields surrounding our house. Then the local newspaper ran an article about former internees returning to Camp Minidoka on an annual pilgimage--an hour's drive away from me. I was surrounded by WWII history. As a former history major, it was too much to resist. Thus, "Harvest the Wind," the second novel in my WWII trilogy, was born.

"Lotus Bloosom Unfurling" is the third book in the trilogy and brings the characters from the first two novels together. The character in all three novels are dear to my heart.

"Echoes from a Falling Bridge," "Harvest the Wind," "Lotus Blossom Unfurling," "Patrimony," "Two-Hearted Crossing"and "Queenie's Place"(soon to be released) are available through Amazon, B&N, Kobo, independent book stores, and my website
